I have had no issues with CQG data for 8 years, until SC starts to promote their Denali data feed.

If you look at their posts at their forum, you would know SC hold hostile attitude to all outside data providers, especially to CQG.

Since SC have conflict of interest with outside data providers, then SC says "others have issues" this statement is worthless to believe, especially in beginning, I saw how they use false information to misunderstand traders that CQG only have 5 days tick data.

Their unethical commercial manipulation and slander really match their conspiracy theories in their forum.

I fully agree with this poster, well said.

I will continue to use CQG and have moved to Jigsaw as my alternative. My charting needs are basic and my DOM needs surpass my charting needs. Even more so after discovering a major error in the SC recent bid/ask trades DOM columns.

I'll end up paying more to stay with CQG and transition to Jigsaw, but I am partly doing it out of principle because I hate paying rude and arrogant jerks such as the SC owners.

With kind regards,
MK

Hi, you said you are using Sigma360, it is a white-label product of MotiveWave, so if I were you and satisfied with Sigma360, I would buy a lifetime license of Motivewave, https://www.motivewave.com/products/products.htm#chartingandtradingsoftware

Motivewave Order Flow version's One-Time Payment is $595 USD, SC package 11 is 46 USD, let's do a math: 595/46=12.9, what this mean?
It means that if you trade more than 13 months, then SC will expensive than MotiveWave.

By the way, at Black Friday or some holidays, many platforms have discount.

And my US broker AMP Futures provides "Free Full features" Quantower, and Multicharts(C#, not Easy Languages version), so you can use them with zero cost.

That is possible, but what is the alternative to Sierrachart though. At this price, it looks like there is nothing else. I too have had no issues with CQG .

Life is full of compromises, isn't it? They compensate their rudeness with a great product imho. They also give great support once you ignore some of the off the cuff remarks.

Thanks so much. I was just checking out Sigma360 since my broker suggested it, but I am not happy with it. Sierrachart is awesome in many ways for me, it's very flexible and user friendly, so in all likelihood, I will stick on to Sierrachart.

I disagree it is a great product. If you are trading in any Asian futures market, it is a terrible product, the worst on the market.

Do you not think Sierrachart is very customizable?
